Xbox has officially announced a new set of titles coming to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service this month with two of them — Shredders and The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos — joining later this week. Xbox Game Pass is additionally set to add titles like Crusader Kings III, Zero Escape: The Nonary Games, and more in the coming weeks. As is typical, the exact platforms these will all be available on differs between console, PC, and via the cloud.
In addition to the previously mentioned video games, Xbox Game Pass will also be adding Tainted Grail: Conquest, Norco, F1 2021, and Weird West before the end of March. If history is any indication, this should be the last batch announced for the month barring any surprises, and the next slate of Xbox Game Pass titles will be announced in early April.
